Ventral view: chambers inflated; intercameral sutures slightly depressed, meeting at tight umbilicus; aperture umbilical, opposite second- last--third-Iast intercameral suture, tear-shaped, with thick lip. Lateral view: smoothly rounded. Wall moderately densely perforate, thickened, weakly cancellate in some parts.
